Sorry it’s been a long time, but we think we’re now back on track.
Great to see those who came to the Eisteddfod last Sunday. Sally C has been awarded the David March Lovespoon for Welsh Language Achievement for the last year. Llongyfarchiadau, Sally. Pictures at https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100006602778703
Meanwhile, a major policy decision has taken place. Rather than the random dates we have set which have been at the convenience of the majority of arrivees at each monthly event, we have decided to set the Meetup date to the second Saturday each month starting January.
The next events are
Sunday November 19 Brighton
Saturday December 9 Brighton
Thenceforth, second Saturday
Saturday 13 January Lewes
Saturday February 10 Uckfield
Saturday March 10 Chichester
Saturday April 14 Albourne
PM me for the address for each.
We usually have a theme to think about beforehand so we can have something specific to talk about. For the next session it will be ‘My favourite Welsh Song’ - why do I like it so much? Explain as much as possible in your own Welsh, reverting to Saes if need be. Don’t worry, no-one will be forced to sing!
Times will be 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm except for the following-
I have a copy of the Hedd Wyn film and we thought it could be good to have a Welsh film evening. The logical time for this would be April 14 following our meetup. For convenience, I suggest we start the meetup at 2:00, have a latish lunch and stop 5:00 ish, break for some more food - likely to be a whip-round Chinese or similar, start the film afterwards and generally lounge around with good company and maybe a glass of something for a while afterwards. Partners who don’t come to Cacen may want to join us for the film, food and fun. Unless you don’t want to invite them :). Either way, an opportunity to socialise.
For the first time, I have attempted an event on Facebook. Whilst I realise not everyone is on FB, maybe it will get Cacen a bit more exposure. Let your friends know, and any feedback welcome.
Don’t forget the weekly Brighton meetup at a tafarn in, erm, Brighton.
